Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is increasingly being recognised as a complex global health threat requiring concerted efforts from different sectors of society to address its root causes. Community Engagement, which is seen as central to addressing AMR, needs to be combined with stakeholder engagement to scale findings to policies and practices. Responsive Dialogues on Drug Resistant Infections is a model that provides guidance for doing just that: bringing different stakeholders together to discuss, debate and respond to evidence and information about AMR, and generating concrete practical steps to addressing the issue at community and policy levels.
In this webinar held in October 2022 exploring Community Engagement for AMR, speakers shared findings from pilot projects run by Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust (MLW) in Malawi and Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) in Thailand. Watch the recording to learn about the approaches used, key findings about community’s understanding of, engagement with, and possible solutions to AMR, and hear about pathways to scale.
